The Quixote Project - from South Jersey Pines/ Philadelphia
We hail from the great state of New Jersey and are a neo-roots music outfit. From Folk to Rockabilly, Bluegrass to Soul we like to pull from traditional lines to kick in the doors of modern music. Call this musical hodgepodge what you will but at the end of the day we strive to create one cohesive musical experience. With engrained styling's derived from the timbers of the Pines Barrens, steel-toe...

d foot stomping beats, and fine crafted melodies and lyrics we are a band of musicians known as The Quixote Project.

WaveRadio - from West Chester, PA

WaveRadio is a new exciting rock trio based in West Chester PA. They dropped their debut full length in October of 2012 and it has made a big slash in the area. Definitely an artist to watch - this band is destined for stadiums and arenas. Thunderous bass grooves, ethereal chord textures, and incessant beats provide the foundation for soaring vocals and epic leads. This small group of musicians provides a sound much larger than the sum of it's parts. Be sure to keep an eye out for their show dates and new releases.
“The album is memories in melodies that roll like roadside hills. Songs are shadowy, tinged with grey but able to punch through powerfully. It’s raw rock that’s been polished with a cloth dipped in motor oil.”

Next to None - from Coopersburg, PA

“NEXT TO NONE - featuring drummer Max Portnoy, the 14-year-old son of Mike Portnoy (ADRENALINE MOB, ex-DREAM THEATER) - have released a video for the song 'Fortune Cookie', featured on their new self-titled EP. Check it out : ” 
“Drummer Mike Portnoy (ex-DREAM THEATER): "I've been blessed with so many unforgettable moments in my career, but watching my son open for me the last two nights (of the tour) has been the proudest! That's my boy! So proud of Max and NEXT TO NONE..."”


In an era where the majority of hip hop artists “press play” and hit the stage POLITICAL ANIMALS stand out by bringing out the raw sound of hip-hop with a completely live sound. No pre-recorded music, no background beats, just pure hip-hop. Laced with funk grooves, break beats, the power of rock, and classic hip-hop, their sound is unlike anything you have heard before.
“It’s just that animal mentality to turn a dream into reality.”

“The group prides themselves on making music for people of all races and cultures. Their sound is unlike anything you’ve ever heard and a true breakthrough for Connecticut hip hop music. Listen to their lyrics intently, and you will get a true feel for what these three talented artists are about, and how they plan on changing the face of rap beginning in our state and looking towards the world.”

In The Presence Of Wolves - from Barrington, NJ

In the Presence of Wolves is a Progressive Rock band that has been brewing in the minds of bassist Vini Stamato and guitarist Chris Capitanio since 2009. Wishing to do something different from conventional rock and local music, they chose to challenge themselves musically and creatively in a way that is totally different from other bands in South Jersey. After a series of setbacks and side projects, the two reconvened and got to work on their music. They embraced the freedom of prog music where they were free to experiment without labels or expectations. In 2012, they joined up with guitarist Justin Alexander and drummer Mason Ingling to solidify their lineup. Now, they're preparing to make waves and unleash their own brand of rock.
